Team Rynkeby finishes the season big

Stockholm, | With never-before seen support and despite Corona, Team Rynkeby raises 8.7 million euros for critically ill children.

Even if the final stop was not Paris: Despite Corona, the latest tour of Team Rynkeby was a success. Many employees of the Eckes-Granini Group joined forces with Team Rynkeby in eight countries to collect donations for critically ill children and their families. This year, donations totaled 8.7 million euro – with 3.5 million raised by the Swedish team alone.

As a substitute for the cancelled tour to Paris, regional tours took place in Germany, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark, following Corona guidelines. With 1,541 supporters, the event saw the largest number of sponsors in Team Rynkeby’s entire history. A total of 57 teams from eight countries competed with about 2,100 cyclists. More than 500 volunteers supported the tour.

For 2021, Team Rynkeby's riders hope they will be able to celebrate the season's highlight on the Champs-Élysées in Paris – at last, it is the team’s 20th anniversary.
